New research findings from IGP
Mechanism for the formation of new blood vessels discovered
In a new study published in the journal EMBO Reports, researchers from IGP show for the first time a mechanism for how new blood vessels are formed and the importance of this mechanism for embryo survival and organ function. The results could be developed to control the formation of new blood vessels in different diseases.
Women’s deep belly fat more strongly linked to diabetes and cardiovascular diseases
A comprehensive study from IGP, with over 325,000 participants, shows that deep belly fat is a major contributing risk factor for developing diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The study also shows that deep belly fat is a larger risk factor in women compared to men. Moreover, the scientists investigated how our genes affect the accumulation of fat and present a new, simpler method to estimate the amount of deep belly fat.
Three new parts of the database The Human Protein Atlas
The HPA project has recently released a new version of The Human Protein Atlas. This is the most extensive update so far, with the completely new parts Blood Atlas, Brain Atlas, and a Metabolic Atlas, developed in collaboration with Chalmers University.
